As the Arctic Tundra melts it unfreezes the Arctic Sirens and their looking for a new home among the frozen wastes of Art galleries. WARNING!!! do not fee or copulate with the Arctic Sirens.
As part of Black Hole Club’s event Transmission I performed as the Queen of the BBC’s iconic Radiophonic Workshop Delia Derbyshire. The spirit of Delia uses outdated tech to mourn the death of analogue. Playing upon her excessive love of wine she drank away the night while inviting the audience to join her in smashing cd’s. ‘The vile digital replacement’.
Thanks to David Checkley for his invaluable help resurrecting the Theremin.
Transmission was Curated by Antonio Roberts and featured work by Jeff Kolar, Coral Manton, Daniel Hopkins, David Checkley, John Bradburn, Michael Lightborne, Patrick Goodall, Pete Ashton, Rebecca Mahay, Sian Macfarlane, and Vicky Roden.

For the HFWAS Knees up I was invited to make a fun piece reminiscent of childhood tales around the piano with nanna. Given that easter was fast approaching I decided to make a live version of the Cadbury egg bird whose bright colours and manic behaviour filled my youth. The bird man went about causing mischief and passing out chocolate eggs after smashing them on his head.
a three week painting exhibition runs until the 23rd
It plays with the glamorisation of warfare and in particular the dehumanising effect early designs of gas mask. The show also pulls upon childhood fears and fascinations, playing in the attic and finding an old gas mask in the half light.
Five paintings now sold.
LUNG PROTECTOR runs from the 3rd until the 23rd of April and is then followed by ‘Blessed be the Yeti’ a experimentation of ideas for an upcoming project 24th till the 30th. Private view 27th 6 – 8
